Seasons Greeting

Its that time of year again when the lights are out and the carols are being sung. The big corporations are gearing up to make massive profits and see all of their hard work in advertising useless products to the masses pay off. The time when the malls and stores are filled to breaking point with all things Christmas and Santa related.

The same time of year where the liberals and atheists lose their minds because mangers are place don public display and because people dare to say "Merry Christmas" without first checking to make sure that the person it is directed at is not offended by the word "Christmas".

Its the time of year when we are all rushing around like mad people trying to get everything closed off and wound down so that we can maybe take a bit of time off to celebrate the biggest commercial holiday of the year.

But for some of us, it is a time when we get to sit back and reflect on the year that was. To give praise and worship to God for bringing us through our daily hardships and for keeping us sane through the stupidity that is the progressive liberal world of the 21st century. A time for quiet and fort reflection  and for regeneration. A time to clear out the dirt that has accumulated in our lives and minds so that we can start it all over again in the new year. A time for being grateful to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for His sacrifice for us and for His guidance throughout the year.

To this end, my husband and I will be going away over the next few weeks and will be getting back to nature. We will be camping out in the gorgeous South African bush - away from all interruptions and the noise of the city. We will not have access to news and current affairs and will not be bothering ourselves with any of it until the new year.

I know that blogging has been light for the past few months but I do make a promise that one of my new years resolutions is that I will be blogging a lot more frequently when we get back.

So to that end, I want to wish each and every single one of you who reads this blog and happy and blessed Christmas and a restful and prosperous new year!

God bless.

Why Laura Shortridge Hates White People - Libtard Drivel

And here it is folks, one of the main reasons that I cannot abide self-hating white liberals and their whiny little diatribes. Laura Shortridge is a wonderful example of this kind of person – and one who rivals good Old LWB Gillian Schutte (all of my readers should know just what my feelings are for her…).

In short, Ms Shortridge has led the pack this week in her “why white people suck and you should hate them all” article. She says she doesn't hate ALL white people though – only the ones who stand up for themselves, speak out about how this country is going to the dogs and don’t pander to every whim of the “gibs me dat” crowd. You see, she loves her WHITE boyfriend, her WHITE family (I see no race mixing there), her WHITE friends and her WHITE colleagues… For someone who has so much hate for the white race she seems to surround herself with a whole lot of them… Typical liberal behaviour.

I have made a few comments in red through her little diatribe below… good luck and I hope and pray that you have more patience with it than I had…

Every now and then, someone wants to know why I hate white people.

Laura Shortridge finally opens up and answers this very controversial question.

Obviously I don’t universally hate white people. I’d really struggle if I did, because it’d mean hating myself, my family, my boyfriend, far too many of my friends, and far too many of the people who I look up to and admire.

But, sometimes, I hate a lot of white people. Why? Because white people are the entitled little spoilt brats of the world, and it’s embarrassing.

Calm down. Hear me out. Remember, I'm a little spoilt brat white kid too.

Think of a really spoilt rich kid, the sort who has, for his whole life, had everything handed to him on a platter.

That child is so used to being treated like a god, to having his wants and needs prioritized over everyone and everything else, that it’s very likely he’s become an insufferable little asshole (this link goes to a story about Elliot Rogers – because he is the personification of the white race dontcha know?) that throws temper tantrums over the smallest things.

Now, it would be unkind and irresponsible to assume all rich kids are like this. It would also be unkind and irresponsible to blame the asshole rich kid’s attitude entirely on him alone. He’s only seven, and he’s been raised that way. It’s the parents’ fault, really.

But that doesn't justify the rich kid’s actions, and it doesn't mean he can go through life prioritizing his own needs (so he should go through life trying to make everyone else happy?) and wants as if he’s the only human in the world who matters, and throwing tantrums every time he doesn't get what he wants (hmmmmm… sounds more like the behaviour of the black darlings she seems so protective over – can one say “Ferguson”?).

Sooner or later, if that kid wants to not be universally hated by every single person he meets, he’s going to need to learn how to calm down, consider other people, and basically just realize and accept that he’s sharing the planet with about 7 billion other people, most of whom are worse off than him, and all of whom matter (but naturally they matter more than he does and more than his family too…)

Now, you can throw your toys around and cry and scream and shout all you want in reaction to this statement but the fact is: society, and the world, spoils white people. (You want to use my culture, business practises, ideas, inventions, language and land then I think its quite right I get something out of it… and spoils white people? I don’t see too many white countries getting aid from black countries, or whites being given massive amounts of leeway in everything including criminal sanctions but I do see that as the norm for blacks… whites are spoiled though when they EARN their way 99% of the time and the remainder are told off as freeloaders…)

For a document that really explains this in detail, check out Peggy McIntosh’s ‘White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Backpack’, but I'm only going to talk about one or two examples. (I did an April Fools post using this article… and I really wish that I had answered all of the pathetic assertions in it at the time. How she thinks an American article form the 80’s – where the majority in America is white – can apply to South Africa where the majority is black – escapes me)

If you’re white, you can expect to be the hero in most stories. Go to the movies, watch the latest biggest series, or pick up a book, and you will see your race represented as the default. (Can we help it if all heroes are modelled after Caucasians? That the myths, legends, literary works etc on which all of these heroes are based are white by Historical accuracy? I wonder when the blacks will start writing their own stories and screenplays starring people of their own race rather than demanding that white culture be adapted to suit them?)

Not only that, but even when members of your race are the bad guys, you can be almost certain that they’ll have some back story that makes you empathize with them and realize they’re not really bad, they’re just victims of their circumstances. Meanwhile, black people are often cast as villains with no real explanation for their villainy given. (Examples please? All I see coming out of Hollywood are anti-white movies… Django Unchained – good guy is only good because he murders all the white people. 12 years a slave? Nothing but a “poor me” black propaganda piece. Green Mile? Innocent black guy who has god-like healing magic powers is killed off by unfeeling sadistic white guy, The Bone Collector? Helpless black manwho helps solve crimes and save lives is stalked and attacked b y evil white man with vendetta…  I actually cannot recall a movie where the black guy is the villain other than Othello – but Moors were black so….)

We are encouraged by the stories we tell each other to firmly believe white people, particularly white men, are inherently good people even when they do bad things, while black people are bad because they just are.

This isn't a universal truth for all stories (but thank you for the titles of movies that you’re no doubt angrily typing out in the comments right at this moment to PROVE me WRONG) but it is a trend. (Your warped interpretation is insane. If you actually watched without your politically correct glasses on you would realise that the story is that good people can go bad – when was Hitler portrayed as good in any movie? – due to their CHOICES. I believe this is a standard in all movies. Is it not the hallmark of a good storyteller to make people associate with their characters? You really believe that oh-so-liberal Hollywood has an agenda to make black guys out to be the bad guys? Someone needs a dose of reality)

This trend has had an effect. There is a racial empathy gap in the world, where people feel more empathy for white people than they do people of other races, particularly those of African descent. (Hmmmm… I wonder how many black people feel more empathy for whites than they do for other blacks? And how many Chinese people feel more empathy for whites than they do for other Chinese people? And how many Indians, Arabs, Japanese and Coloured people feel more empathy for whites than they do for other Indians, Arabs, Japanese and Coloured people? Oh… that’s right – none. So now it’s a massive issue if white people feel more empathy for whites but perfectly ok for other races? Lovely double standard there… and naturally, it’s wrong to feel more empathy for the good guy than the bad guy right?)

And while black people are watching all the stories we watch where we (white people) are the heroes, from 'Game of Thrones' to 'Downton Abbey', many white people seem to struggle to empathize with black people so much, that they’re actively upset when black actors are cast to play important roles. (Game of Thrones – white characters in books, Downtown Abbey – forgive them for not putting prominent black characters into a family of white people living in a a period of English history when black people were NOT parts of those families… And excuse fans for being upset when the cannon that they love is blatantly ignored for political correctness to make the libtards happy.)

In fact, several studies have shown, time and time again, that we are subconsciously racist whether we realize it and mean to be or not. (Does this not seem to indicate that a preference for our own races is genetic then?)

Maybe this is why, when yet another black child is murdered in America, there are so many white people who empathize with his murderer. (Michael Brown – the 18 year old – read adult in the US – 292 pound, 6ft4 thug that robbed a store, had a criminal history as long as your arm, attacked a police officer, attempted to take his gun, rushed at him full speed and deliberately ignored instructions to stop and lie on the ground is now “another black child” and the guy who would have been killed/maimed is the demon for protecting himself? How many black people empathised with the black cop who shot and killed Dillon Taylor 3 days after Michael Brown was killed huh?)

Maybe this is why, when white people who should know better (and who would know better if they cared to empathize with anyone who isn't black) decide to wear the highly unacceptable and extremely racist statement that is blackface, there are people who feel sorry for them when they get into trouble for it. (Blah blah blah… how many times has it been done now? How dressing up as someone is racist I will never know. Is wearing drag sexist? Is me borrowing my husband’s sweatshirt sexist? Or how about when the Wayans brothers dress up and blonde white women and set out to humiliate and deride them as much as possible on the big screen? That isn’t racist? But me painting myself brown and depicting a black person is? And for those who don’t know – blackface as a type of ARTISTIC EXPRESSIONISM. Strange how no one calls it racist when Chris Rock mocks white people ad nauseam…)

And maybe it’s why, when three of the five young men who decided to attack and violently beat a mother of six, kicking her in the head and face while shouting racial slurs, there are people who feel sorry for them because they cried when they realized they’d have to spend a few days in prison. (I don’t see anyone feeling sorry for them… in fact I see them being universally condemned… But what I do see is that not everyone jumps on the racist bandwagon and calls it a racist attack – so they mentioned her colour during the attack – prove they attacked her because of her race and not because in some twisted way she had managed to piss them off?)

Maybe that’s why they were released on bail after an "urgent" application to the Western Cape High Court, because, basically, "shame these poor boys yes they attacked and almost murdered an older, defenceless woman because of her race but…" (Their parents got a lawyer who knew what he was doing and how to play the process – big whoop. Seems like someone has no idea how the courts work in SA…)

White people are absolutely phenomenal at repeatedly prioritizing their hurt feelings over the right to dignity, respect, and safety of others. They (we) are incredible at repeatedly and without batting an eyelid acting like only white people are people who really are real people. (Oh, that’s right, white people are not people are they? And we have no right to complain and bring to light the things that affect us personally? And we should naturally give way to fighting the cause of the poor black man who keeps killing the whites over the whites who are being killed… makes 1200% sense. And guess what? When you define people as individuals with rights AND responsibilities then yes, only whites are people because to you libtards black people are never responsible for anything – its only the white man who is.)

White people will lose their shit over the smallest things while repeatedly telling people of other races to just get over absolutely horrific indignities, over and over again. (Oh, I’m sorry, in 2012 whites should not be complaining about attempts to actively exclude them from earning a living in the country in 2012 – it’s a teeny, tiny little thing that could see millions of whites forced into poverty but no big… whereas the legitimate killing of one thug by a police officer in the course of his duty is a massive thing that should make the world stop turning and 2 little girls painting their faces brown for a private social function is destroying the world as we know it… oh the humanity!)

White people will not bother to read this article and consider the serious concerns it raises because I said something that hurts their white feelings, so they’ll rush to the comments to scream and cry and throw tantrums because the world is so unfair to them. (You’re right… because no serious concerns were raised. You mentioned nothing about the declining economy, skyrocketing crime levels, the fact that we have rolling blackouts regularly, that the black man running the country was tried for rape and has blatantly stolen ¼ of BILLION Rand from taxpayers while we have basically no service delivery and infrastructure is crumbling around us – while we pay almost 50% of our earnings in tax every month… Yeah, the  whites are such terrible people that all we care about is the stuff previously mentioned… But you’re right, we should all try and see the bigger picture – how evil and terrible we are because we don’t feel the need to lick the black man’s ass while he’s robbing us blind, murdering our family and raping us…)

"Yes there’s a plague of attacks on people of colour all over the world, but some white girl said she didn't like white people you guys omg omg we’re so oppressed!" Priorities. (Plague of attacks on people of colour? By whites you mean and you show me 3 examples - Trayvon Martin - another thug who attempted to kill the man who shot him, a group of drunk men attack a woman and its a race issue and one unfortunate incident - it was because he was black that he was shot at right? Not because he was brandishing a gun and ignored 3 instructions to drop it - and it’s a plague? So what do you call the 4000 odd white farmers and their families murdered by blacks then? Or the countless “knockout game” victims? Or the grannies who are being raped and murdered by black men? What about the white children being executed by blacks? Oh yes, that’s right, they deserve it because they were born white and therefore privileged… I hardly think we would call ourselves oppressed by the likes of you – but you seem to be doing a good job of that to yourself through your libtard brainwashing…)

And that, to answer your question, is why I hate white people.
(And morons like you are the reason I hate liberals)

This Thing of Racism

I read a lovely little opinion piece today and just had to comment on it. Here are my comments as well as the post below... you can read my comment as well as the ones that follow it on the original article linked at the bottom.

1. So its now racist to question why the state is spending millions on a funeral when infrastructure is falling apart and they cannot even pay their debts? And when "black twitter" does nothing but threaten violence and death then yes, it is correct to describe them as “a horde of the least eloquent, most furious, marauding lunatics”. And I don't believe race was an issue with the Messi comparison - the comparison was the ability of the players. Messi being a million times better player than Meyiwa as well as having served longer. Fact.
2. The Oscar verdict has nothing to do with race. How a black judge giving a completely incorrect verdict on a white accused which is being heavily appealed by the white prosecutor is a race issue I will never understand. Its a money issue and nothing more.
3. If I read the stories correctly, Bezuidenhout had never lied about his qualifications at all and the fact that he didn't complete the degrees was clearly stated on his CV. The error was made in financial statements - something that should have been corrected yes. He had also proved himself capable through his work at Mango. Ellen Tshabalala on the other hand completely lied about having any qualifications whatsoever just so that she could get the job. Her track record was also murky. But sure, they should go ahead and axe the guy if he doesn't have the required qualifications.
4. Sensationalist reporting? So facts are now sensationalist? Pointing out the corruption of the government officials who annex our tax money annually is sensationalist? Highlighting the immorality of the people who are tasked with upholding law and order in our country is sensationalist? But it's perfectly fine to report ad nauseam about the one time that a white man referred to black woman by a word we're not allowed to say behind her back? That isn't sensationalist is it? And it's not sensationalist when the same thing is done when a white model also uses a word? Or when a white man sings a prayer? None of that is sensationalist at all... I don't think that word means what you think it means...
5. White privilege does not exist - it is a made up thing in your little victim head to make yourself feel better about your failures. I have no privilege because I am actively excluded from almost all spheres of life by government and black society at large in this country. Law is aimed at disenfranchising me, I am constantly derided for living a life better than others who don't work at all when I work 18 hour days to live that life and I am blamed for all of the ills that befall this country regardless of the source simply because of my skin colour... Privileged my foot.


Sibu Mgudlwa

Hey howzit,
You have probably noticed how things become racialized even when they seem not to be about race at all. You probably remember Gareth Cliff’s tweet (which some people thought wasn’t racist at all. Shame). You’ll probably recall how the whole Oscar verdict was labelled as a triumph of white people over the law. You also probably saw on Twitter how some people were irked at the fact that when a black CEO is found to have lied about his credentials, the nation comes out guns blazing demanding his head; yet when his white counterpart is found guilty of the same thing, we are coy and “understanding”. Who would have thought all these things and more, really, could become case studies of race relations in South Africa.
Well, the above examples may all seem to be far from being an issue about race, but if you dig deeper (which is something I wish to help you with today) you may very well see the link.
The first thing we must appreciate is that there’s more to race than colour, particularly in South Africa. For the longest of time, every aspect of our lives has been defined by what one’s race is: our education, our economic and financial standing, where we live, which doctor we see (if at all) and our safety and security (for some, the lack thereof). So before I move forward with this letter, I need you to understand that race is not just about black and white and that there’s a whole world of grey in between.
et’s start with the “grey area” in Gareth Cliff’s tweets about Senzo Meyiwa’s funeral costs. Firstly, the tweets were crudely insensitive because his they did not just cast doubt over the legitimacy of the funeral (which we all know was obviously paid for by the State as in all provincial funerals), but it also cast a shadow over a black person who many South African looked up to. He then added salt to the wound by comparing Meyiwa to Lionel Messi (an Italian-Argentine white person) in his bid to further delegitimize Meyiwa. Later on that day he publishes a blog piece on his website titled: “On the wrath of Black Twitter and being called a racist” and further goes on to describe this “Black Twitter” he speaks of as “a horde of the least eloquent, most furious, marauding lunatics”.
These are the reasons why this episode was racist: Firstly, you don’t ask financially-related questions on the day of the funeral in our culture as black people; it is disrespectful to the family and the mourners and refusing to apologize is even more insulting. Secondly, you don’t get to call Black users of Twitter a “horde of lunatics”. I mean, really. The original intention may not have been to be racist, but the implications of his actions are cutting.
And what of the Oscar verdict? Why do people see the need to involve race there? Well, black South Africans don’t really know what “equality before the law” is. For many years, they were subjugated to second-class citizens who did not deserve the same justice accorded to white people. The verdict of the Oscar case, where it was common cause that the defendant killed and murdered Reeva Steenkamp in cold blood, was a stark reminder to many blacks of how white South Africans can get away with murder (so to speak). The trial was racial from the beginning; it was the first time the country got to really see how a white person will be treated by the courts and the masses stayed glued to their screens to watch what will happen. And we all saw what happened: he all, but walked off scot free (excuse the irony) with cakes and balloons for his birthday in prison a day or two ago. For many, who admittedly have very limited legal expertise, the trial was not fair and the white man won. Again.
Let us consider the last example of how race plays itself out. When it transpired recently that SAA CEO Nico Bezuidenhout had lied about his qualifications, the leading headline was “SAA acting CEO ‘overstated his qualifications”. Contrast this to a little while back, when it was discovered that Ellen Tshabalala, SABC Board Chairperson, had lied about her qualifications, the headlines were “Tshabalala failed badly at Unisa”. Same set of facts just a different image being portrayed by the media. (I’ll tell you now that “overstated” sounds tons better than “failed”.)
I’ll concede that this is one isolated example of race in the media, but this is precisely the problem. There is a subliminal, almost insidious, trend in the media lately that seeks to portray blacks as fraudsters and liars and failures. Because of this trend, there is now a shadow, almost imperceptible, lingering over the head of many black intelligent women and men as their credibility is eroded day after day by sensationalist reporting. You see very little of the collusion and corruption that happens in the boardrooms in Sandton (largely populated by white people) in our papers, but will see headlines blaring out accusations of the very same crimes against black people. This assertion is very hard to quantify into objective facts, but it’s also very hard to miss.
You see, my friend, you have privileges (and I really hope you don’t deny that so-called White Privilege exists) on your side and a pretty secure life (save for one or two of our white friends who are sort-of kind-of poor). I, on the other hand, have to contend with white people who disrespect my values on Twitter, white people who delegitimize my heroes by showing me that there are better, white heroes out there, a justice system that seems largely unchanged and still favours you, and a media (owned by you, no?) that is relentlessly showing me what a failure my people are. Added to this, you and your family and our other white friends own the economy and all the juice in it and, while a handful of black people thrive in it, it is still firmly in your hands. (You really don’t seem to be letting go, are you, buddy?)
While I may not necessarily blame you, I do blame your fathers and I do blame the system that allows this inequality and racism to prevail. Our society is grossly unequal and it is precisely because you’re white and I’m black. Really, we have evolved from the days where racism was just the k-word. Our society is racial. Everything about it is racial.
Let that sink in.
Well, you take care now,
 your friend.

Crime Does Pay

We have already seen and discussed how the ANC seemingly only appoints people with criminal records to top government positions. We also know that they then go and fleece as much as they can from the taxpayer through dodgy tenders, irregular expenditure and outright theft...

But now it is time that we discussed how we are PAYING each and every single one of them to steal from us. In fact, we are paying our MP's almost twice the global average salary for them to screw us over, steal tax money and spend millions of Rands on food (source) and funerals for soccer players (source) killed by the thugs they allow to run rampant in the streets...

We all know that the traditional role of MP's is to attend to the day to day business of the country. The laws and issues that arising that need dealing with - like when Eskom cannot keep the lights on or when we have to drive as though drunk on our roads because weaving in and pout is the only way that we can avoid potholes, or when we have to live in veritable prisons to protect ourselves from criminals who will willingly murder us for a few Rand here or there, when we have to pay twice as much for food and services because of things like E-tolls, when we have hospitals falling apart and filthy without staff where people simply go to die in the hallways... those things are what they should be dealing with. 

The only problem is that they are not dealing with it. In fact, the Presidency claims that splurging millions on President Jacob Zuma’s huge cabinet is necessary in order to "deliver" for the South African people. Strange how I have yet to see any delivery... in fact, my post hasn't arrived in about 9 weeks now last I checked and I have had 5 power failures in the last 2 weeks... No service here at all. Unless they are talking about the hilarious show they have been putting on in Parliament for the last few months...

SA spends R1,6BILLION on MP salaries...and the only thing that they care about is protecting Zuma from answering difficult questions in Parliament... Pathetic

SA ministers paid almost double global average

2014-11-25 12:00
Cape Town - The Presidency claims that splurging millions on President Jacob Zuma’s huge cabinet is necessary in order to "deliver" for the South African people.

But how do other countries compare? News24 finds out.

The news that Zuma’s 74 ministers and deputies cost taxpayers at least R1.6bn comes alongside warnings that Christmas is looking bleak for many; with rising unemployment, strikes and bad debts piling up.

Though ministers earn a cool R2.1m, the Presidency insists that the size and shape of the executive is "required to deliver on the priorities".

But a glance across the globe reveals South African ministers earn significantly more than their counterparts.

Perks and privileges

Comparing MPs salaries in different countries is difficult because they all receive different expenses and allowances. But the UK’s 'expenses scandal' in 2009 - where a number of MPs were caught out and even jailed for abusing parliamentary perks - put the spotlight on salaries worldwide.

The average MPs salary across the countries surveyed by the UK's Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) was just under R1.5m ( £86 237).

With earnings of R2.1m, South African ministers then earn 40%, or R600 000, more than the average.

By comparison, British MPs are paid R1.1m (£65 738), taking home a massive 81% less than their South African counterparts and 31% less than the global average.

Fair pay packet

Tasked with regulating and setting new pay levels for the UK’s MPs, Ipsa said that MPs had "miserly" salaries and recommended last year that they receive a 10% pay rise to R1.2m (£74 000) by 2015.

The idea was met with a cross-party chorus of opposition from MPs themselves, who agreed it wasn't appropriate given the tough economic times.

However, Ipsa insisted it had done “rigorous” research, and that the figure wasn't just an "arbitrary number".

Though Ipsa's research did not include African nations, Ipsa found that just four other countries - the US, Australia, Italy and Japan - paid their MPs around R1.7m.

Japan leads the pack

Ipsa found that only one developed nation pays its MPs more than we do: Japan.

Japanese MPs earn a vast R2.87m - while those with a similar pay bracket to our MPs are Australian MPs with a salary of R2m, Italian MPs with earnings of R1.95m and American legislators - who earn around R1.87m.

Meanwhile, Kenyan MPs - previously among the best paid in Africa - bent to public pressure last year by accepting their first pay cut.

Kenyan MPs saw their pay drop half a million Rand to just under R830 000 - though only after negotiating terms for a tax-free car grant, pensions and other allowances.

White Genocide in Motion

Found this on the blog Ozzie Saffa. It's a clear visual representation of what is happening around the world. It's just a shame that the small white population is South Africa has been forgotten as the only remaining white enclave in Africa - where we are slowly being eliminated...

It's also clearly evident that this is what many blacks in SA feel should be done, as is evidenced here by one Tesh Ndlovu (and other with a similar mindset) - an EFF member who happily published these comments online and who had many other EFF members agreeing with him. It should be noted that no one in the EFF condemns this kind of speech... but then what did we expect when their leader sings about shooting the boer and physically attacks one (note how it's in a large group of other black males).

Notice how in this version he leaves out the necklace part? this is because one of his followers asked him to remove it because she didn't think it was appropriate for kids to read...

Racial Propaganda on the Resurgence in South Africa

In a very well written article on Politicsweb yesterday afternoon, the racial disparity and outfight demonization of the white population is highlighted - along with the media and public determination to ignore iot and in fact be an accomplice thereto.

Racial propaganda on the resurgence in South Africa
15 October 2014

Race-aware intellectuals (of all colours) increasingly leading the charge against the country's white minority

Over the past several months there has been a striking resurgence of racial propaganda in South Africa, directed against the country's white minority. This follows in the slipstream of the African National Congress government's renewed legislative efforts to solve the race question in South Africa by inter aliaprogressively limiting whites in all private and public sector institutions to their percentage of the total population; the efforts to gradually Africanise small business through the amended B-BBEE codes; and the vociferous calls from the Economic Freedom Fighters, and elements within the ANC, for land owned by whites to be expropriated without compensation for the benefit of the population as a whole.

It also occurs in a context wherein the ANC's past efforts to deal with this question have collapsed into a morass of state dysfunction, corruption, high unemployment and low economic growth - while creating a narrow and hugely wealthy politically-connected elite.

However, unlike in the past, and particularly during the Mbeki-era, this propaganda is not being driven by the ANC and its cadres, but rather by race-aware individuals in South Africa's mainstream media (of all colours) otherwise quite contemptuous of the Zuma administration.

This propaganda is generally characterised by an intense focus on any incident of violence or indignity inflicted by whites on blacks; allegations of continuing and undeserved "white privilege"; claims that property, and particularly land, owned by whites was "stolen"; the effort to downplay or diminish incidents of black on white violence no matter how brutal; and outraged reactions to any call for equal treatment for individuals from the white minority. The following examples are illustrative of the febrile atmosphere of South Africa's media, when it comes to racial issues.


In February this year TimesLive reported - in a story titled "Another race attack at top university" - that "In an apparent racist attack, two white students at the University of the Free State (UFS) allegedly drove deliberately over a black student and repeatedly beat him when he confronted them."

The newspaper claimed that the two students - subsequently named as Cobus Muller and Charl Blom - had, while driving through the main campus of the university in their bakkie, tried to swerve into three black women students (while "calling them kaffirs") before hitting a fifth-year economics student Dumane ‘Muzi' Gwebu while he was walking on the pavement. When Gwebu had confronted Muller and Blom at a nearby residence they had viciously attacked and beaten him.

In a statement issued to the newspaper the UFS said its leadership was "shocked and outraged" by the incident, that the two students involved had been tracked down and handed over to the police, and had been "expelled" from the university. Blom and Muller later stated that two days after the incident they had approached Vice-Chancellor and Rector, Professor Jonathan Jansen, to give their side of the story. Jansen had refused to hear them out and had instead immediately called in campus security who had handed them over to the police.

This incident provoked an outraged response across social media with much discussion of the continued problem of white racism in South Africa, and what to do about it. Eusebius McKaiser the Rhodes Scholar, Power FM talk-show host and columnist for Independent newspapers, tweeted:

A day or two later Jansen wrote an open letter to all UFS students indirectly accusing Blom and Muller, without naming them, of being "violent and hateful persons" and "criminals" who still act as "these are the days of apartheid." He concluded by stating: "The two former students were expelled and will now face justice in the criminal courts. It is hoped that in the course of time they will come to their senses and seek restoration and reconciliation with the student they so callously harmed. They are not part of the university community anymore. That is the kind of university we are."

Gwebu's allegations were subsequently examined both by the South African Human Rights Commission and in the trial of Blom and Muller on charges of reckless driving, crimen injuria, attempted murder and assault. In their trial Blom and Muller denied that they had intentionally hit Gwebu with the vehicle, uttered any sort of racial slur or initiated their assault. According to their version Gwebu had dragged Muller out of the stationary vehicle and begun assaulting him. Muller had then head-butted Gwebu in self-defence. Gwebu had then gone after Muller again, before Blom had pulled him off.

It emerged in court that in their original statements the two black women called as witnesses had said the bakkie had not hit Gwebu, nor did they see him fall. He had also walked away normally. They subsequently changed their statement, after meeting with the prosecution, to say that Gwebu could have been hit. It also emerged from the SAHRC investigation that no witness could corroborate Gwebu's claim that the k-word had been uttered, nor had he himself claimed to have heard it personally.

On September 9 magistrate Rasheed Mathews found Blom and Muller not guilty on all charges. Gwebu was found to have been a prejudiced, hostile and unreliable witness who contradicted himself repeatedly. Gwebu's testimony was also not corroborated by other witnesses or by the physical evidence. Following their acquittal the UFS issued a statement defending the original decision to "suspend" Blom and Muller. Jansen did however apologise "on behalf of the UFS to Cobus Muller and Charl Blom, their parents, and their families, for the disruption that the suspension brought in their lives and for the stress they had to bear during this difficult period. ‘For that, I am truly sorry,' he said."

More recently, the incident in which two white male University of Stellenbosch students dressed up as Venus and Serena Williams at a private fancy dress party, and blackened their faces, met with an equally irate response after a picture slipped into the public domain via social media. Although the students quickly apologised, the Daily Maverickthought this incident of sufficient national import to devote three opinion pieces - by Marelise van der Merwe,Mariann Thamm, and Sisonke Msimang - to denouncing the students. Thamm laid great emphasis on collective historic white guilt and black victimhood; while Msimang wrote that the best that could be said of the students "that they are naïve and unconsciously racist."

The race-aware (white) ventriloquist Conrad Koch also expressed his indignation by tweeting through the medium of his (black) alter ego Chester Missing:


In February this year McKaiser told a conference that "no sense of guilt" needed to be felt over discrimination against children and young adults on the basis of their (white) race when it came to the allocation of positions in schools and jobs. In his writings McKaiser - who recently confessed to the Sunday Times that he "did once buy sneakers for about R13 000 cash" - has repeatedly written about the "unearned privileges" of young white South Africans who attended the same sort of schools and universities he did.

In a column in The Star on Monday this week McKaiser, who has recently left Power FM after a contractual dispute,wrote that the sense of shock that white individuals feel when being passed over for an appointment or promotion, in favour of a (less qualified?) black candidate, reflects an "unexamined sense of entitlement" and "an embedded, internalised sense of superiority." He wrote:

"There is sheer arrogance involved here on the part of the white South African who can't make sense of his or her failure without sustaining a secret belief that they are intrinsically more capable than blacks. You can only lament and be shocked by fewer job offers or promotions in the job sector if you think you deserve these more than blacks. Nothing innocent anchors such shock and disappointment. A sense of superiority, left over from apartheid, fuels this misplaced sense of being democracy's victim. If you conceived of the possibility you might not be the best, other responses to failure beyond shock will open up. Apartheid's beneficiaries aren't yet in that head-space."

McKaiser added that whites still need to do "psychological and moral work" and accept "that past discrimination, not genetic superiority or sheer effort, explains why you're materially better off than me and my family."

The underlying sentiment expressed by McKaiser, and other race-aware commentators, is that what the minority possess today was gained at the expense of the racial majority, through foul measures, over the course of hundreds of years. The corrective measures being currently taken against this minority are both justified and, indeed, considerably more lenient than this race deserves, given their past crimes.


This attitude may help explain why while the UFS and "Williams Sisters" incidents, referred to above, were met with public outrage, violent attacks on white and particularly Afrikaner farmers are met with equanimity in race-aware media circles. The South African Police Service recently disclosed that there had been 2 227 attacks on farms and smallholdings between April 2010 and March 2014, in which 245 individuals had been murdered. By comparison there were 198 robbery-related murders in Germany (pop. 80.2m) in approximately the same four-year period.

A police report described the circumstances around the murders of Nicolaas Lens and Martha Mary Magdalena Lens on September 3 2014 on their farm Elim in the Groenvlei district near Lüneburg in KwaZulu-Natal as follows:

"Mr Lens was shot from behind while he was standing or kneeling. The person who shot him, put the firearm against his head and pulled the trigger (in an execution style). His hat was found next to the body, a roll of binding wire, as well as a 5-litre plastic container containing a pair of fencing pliers and a metal saw... It seems as if his wife was busy preparing food in the kitchen, as they were going to have a braai, when the intruders entered the house. She was taken to the bedroom to open the safe. A panic button was found on top of the safe, which she had pressed to alert people that there was a problem. The panic button was pressed just after 17:00 hours. When the panic button is pressed, the radio's microphone turns into a sender and people tuned in on the network can hear what is happening in the immediate vicinity. A person in the area heard over the radio how a woman was pleading with a person who was shouting at her, then a gunshot was heard. After that the Lens' telephone was heard ringing through the microphone, but nothing else.... Mrs Lens was [later] found on the ground with her hands, in a ‘hands up' position. She was shot in an execution style, with the firearm being pressed hard against her head when the trigger was pulled."

In this context the controversy over the music video of the song "Larney Jou Poes" by Dookom - a largely-white rap group fronted by the (black) rapper Isaac Mutant - is revealing. The song (below) essentially contains 4 minutes ofvolksverhetzung directed against white farmers, beginning and ending with the call for the farms to be burned.

The video, with its violent fantasies of a reichskristallnacht on the land, may have remained in obscurity had City Press not decided to give it expansive coverage on Sunday. The newspaper quoted the (white) British member of the group as accusing farmers of "treating workers worse than animals" - suggesting that if there was violence the farmers would have brought it down on themselves.

The video was widely praised by race-aware intellectuals. TO Molefe, South African columnist for the New York Times Online, tweeted:

Ahead of publication, City Press had approached the Afrikaner civil rights organisation, AfriForum, for comment in an apparent effort to give some "balance" to its coverage. The organisation's deputy CEO, Ernst Roets, told the newspaper: "Farm murders are a massive problem in South Africa, and to romanticise burning down a farm is ridiculous. We are considering laying charges of hate speech."

This comment, in turn, provoked an indignant reaction from the race-aware UCT constitutional law professor, Pierre de Vos. In an article for the Daily Maverick De Vos, whose chair is funded by the Claude Leon Foundation, described AfriForum as an "organisation that fights for the preservation of white privilege" and the song's deployment of Afrikaans as "exquisite". He then entered into a long denunciation of white South Africans, stating inter alia:

"For many (but not all) ‘white' South Africans their racial privilege thus remains comfortingly invisible - much like the air they breathe. When somebody claims ‘not to see race' I try to give that person the benefit of the doubt and to assume he or she does not have the intellectual tools to realise that such a denial helps many of us ‘white' South Africans to remain soothingly blind to the structural racism from which we benefit - whether we choose to do so or not."

AfriForum's comments also provoked an angry response from the journalist Lloyd Geyde. Writing in The Con, an online magazine, he stated:

"The fallacy of the ‘white victim' is becoming nauseating...Farm workers are routinely beaten, raped or murdered in South Africa - just take a look at our court rolls - but white farmers hog the headlines with their claims of ‘genocide'. It's clear slavery and apartheid are still alive and well in South Africa; they are just obfuscated with the language of democracy now."

Finally, in an article in the Mail & Guardian online, the video was also highly commended by the EFF MP and former employee of the European Union funded Foundation for Human Rights, Andile Mngxitama. Mngxitama, who has long called for the dispossession of white farmers on Zimbabwean-style lines, described his interaction with the (white) director of the video as follows:

"One can't help imagine Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained [in viewing the video]. Like the movie, black resistance is permitted by a white creator. Mutant is a front man of a white band. The video itself is produced by a talented white man who goes by the name Sirius Tales. When I tell him [at the launch] that he has pulled a Tarantino, he is pleased. But then I go further and tell him at the day of reckoning he must not expect any mercy from blacks, he frowns with disappointment and asks, ‘But why?' I tell him I have no words to speak the weight of 700 years of black oppression. Dialogue ends."

7 Ways You Know You Are African - According to Jacob Zuma

Here we have it folks and it would seem that they have been right all along... whites are not African despite having been in this country for over 300 years, having developed our own language and having had no other home but this little piece at the very tip of Africa for centuries.

How do I know this you ask? Well it's simple - Jacob Zuma has listed the 7 traits that show that you are truly African. This little gem was compiled for the Mail and Guardian online and it is a fantastic piece.

Only in IQ67 run Africa will you find leaders that are repeatedly elected that show this complete and utter stupidity and revel in it. Only in Africa will you find morons fawning over and swearing to kill in protecting this type of "leader". And only in South Africa is it completely acceptable to elect someone with no more than a grade 4 education, who grew up herding cattle and then got his communist indoctrination groove on while heading up the armed wing of a bunch of terrorists, who rapes a woman and then takes a shower to avoid getting AIDS because he didn't use a condom, impregnates the daughter of his friend, has 4 current wives (a total of 6 altogether), 22 kids at last count (that we have heard about so far) all living on government money, builds himself a fortified castle directly besides the poorest people and who cannot even read a number larger than 10 as the president of our once great nation.

I say well done to every single person rooting for the complete collapse of such a fantastic country in the name of "progress"

From knowing corruption is a "Western paradigm" to abhorring dogs and gay people: welcome to Jacob Zuma's idea of what it means to be an African.

Thabo Mbeki may have written the definitive speech on being an African, but his successor Jacob Zuma is determined to rewrite the script. 
Zuma apparently believes that the dubious financial relationship he enjoyed with his previous adviser Schabir Shaik, involving illicit loans to Zuma, was not corrupt – if you thought about it as an African. 
“Western paradigm brands this criminal,” read his written submission to the National Prosecuting Authority in 2009 to have charges against him dropped, according to a City Press report published on Sunday. 
Our president has a bad rep. The rest of us have been wrangling with the concept of what it means to be an African when this whole time Zuma has had it down pat. He didn’t need to make an epic speech on the matter like Mbeki did
Instead, he’s been dropping hints throughout his two terms in power so far. You’re only truly African if:
1) You’re not too clever 
Clever blacks are a scourge upon the continent, according to Zuma’s speech to the National House of Traditional Leaders in Parliament in November 2012. “Even some Africans, who become too clever, take a position, they become the most eloquent in criticizing themselves about their own traditions and everything.” 

2) You’ll never need a lawyer
His off the cuff remarks on the above occasion included a rant about prisons, lawyers, and other white man ways, over “the African way”. What’s that about the Constitution? Yeah, I’m not sure either. 

3) You have crappy roads 
We may not need lawyers or prisons in Africa but we DO need e-tolls. Because otherwise we’ll be too African. Apparently one needs just the right amount of African-ness in Zuma’s books. “We can’t think like Africans in Africa. It’s not some national road in Malawi,” he told an audience at the University of the Witwatersrand in October 2013 when questioned about the logic of the deeply unpopular e-tolling system. 

4) You know that a little corruption between friends is totally fine
Can there be anything more insulting than conflating the West with accountability and clean governance? In labelling the idea of corruption a “Western paradigm”, Zuma’s lawyers have said that Zuma as an African subscribes to a different culture where corrupt dealings, such as the one that existed between him and Shaik, are ok. Because Africans have a lower standard when it comes to ethics? 

5) If you see a gay person, you would knock them down
Zuma may have apologised for this one, but it’s hard to forget the time he told people in September 2006 that he would knock down an ungqingili, or homosexual in Zulu. “Same sex marriage is a disgrace to the nation and to God. When I was growing up, ungqingili could not stand in front of me, I would knock him out.” 

6) You know that when a woman wears a kanga, it’s business time
Some of Zuma’s more bizarre comments during his rape trial in 2006, in which he was later acquitted, included the idea that a woman wearing a wrap or a kanga, construed a sexual signal, and that “in Zulu culture, you don’t just leave a woman [when she is aroused] ... she will have you arrested and say you are a rapist”. 

7) You wouldn’t dream of having a dog
In a speech during the festive season in KwaZulu-Natal in 2012, Zuma made dog lovers everywhere doubt their African-ness when he described those who loved dogs more than people as “having a lack of humanity”. He also weighed in on the great hair debate (move over Chris Rock) and told black people to stop trying out other culture’s habits. “Even if you apply any kind of lotion and straighten your hair you will never be white,” Zuma said. 

With a list like that, you’d be forgiven for doubting your African-ness – at least as it is currently defined by our president.
